EDIT: Big mistake on my behalf, the first thing after changing a CPU is clear the CMOS and load BIOS defaults, this had made a difference in the pass for me.
How did the BIOS go?
Check the CPU temp in the BIOS and if you can get it to boot longer enough try CoreTemp
. Click more downloads just under the main download for the stand alone package and you might need to tranfer from working PC by USB.
Where are you downloading the drivers? The page I've check the IDE, Sound, VGA are simple zip files and once extracted have a setup.exe in the root folder or are you referring to the BIOS file. The BIOS I downloaded has only 3 files 2 .txt, 1 .bin. I doubt this board can boot from USB so you'll need either a floppy disk and drive or create a bootable CD, must use DOS. Need help here, just ask.

Does this mean it works using the original RAM without the extra 1GB? Have you tried the extra RAM on it's own without the original.
Been a while since I've worked with DDR1 but in the OP you state the original RAM is 533Mhz but the max DDR speed I know of is 400Mhz and the motherboard only supports up to 400Mhz. Please correct or explain.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the extra RAM is PC3200, effective clock rate of 400Mhz and a bus clock of 200Mhz?
